    1. Consent is given by either parent in person at the time the license is applied for; or,

    2. Consent is given through a notarized affidavit signed by either parent when not present. This notarized affidavit of consent must contain the birthdate of the minor, state the relationship of the party giving consent and be written in English.

    3. ORDER OF COURT REQUIRED FOR PERSONS UNDER AGE OF 16: A person less than 16 years of age may marry only if he or she has the consent of a parent or legal guardian and authorization from a Nevada District Court. The court may authorize the marriage of persons less than 16 years of age in extraordinary circumstances if the court finds that:
      a) The marriage will serve the best interests of such person; and,
      b) Such person has the consent required.

    4. WITNESSES: At least one additional witness other than the person performing the ceremony.
